The research evaluated government strategies for managing conflict in Okene local government area of Kogi State. Though quite a lot of work has been conducted on Okene local government area (Ebiraland), there is no significant work on the evaluation of those strategies employed by government for managing conflicts. The study therefore examined strategies in managing the conflicts; and analyzed the effectiveness of those strategies for managing the conflicts in Okene local government area. The data for the study was collected from both primary and secondary sources. The research method was basically through the use of survey technique which involved questionnaire administration and complimented with interview. The study came up with the following findings; Reports and white papers of panels and committees of inquiry were never implemented. The study also found out that the state government did little in addressing the conflicts. Also, interfering with the course of justice on such primordial grounds as clannish affiliation has been a major bane in curtailing the violence in Okene local government area. The strategies for managing conflict employed by government were not completely successful due to its inability to forestall future occurrences. However, the study recommended the need for government to provide adequate security and intelligence network; effective mechanism for the seizure of arms and ammunitions from the hands of youths; embark on necessary policy frameworks that would facilitate the industrialization of the area; traditional leaders, clan heads and politicians sanctioned and held responsible for any breach of peace. Hence, adherence to these suggestions would ensure relative peace in Okene local government area.
